NEIT 2008 discussion with Aaron Grill
November 6, 2008

We discussed the NEIT 2008 conference with Aaron Grill, preseident of NYCIST, the New York Consortium of Independent School Technologists. 

Topics include the unconference plan, the tools we expect everyone to use during the conference, and the goals we each had for the conference.

We're psyched that David Shipley author of SEND, and Sylvia Martinez from Gen Yes as our keynoters and conference participants. 

Next week, we'll be speaking with Scott McLeod about Disrupting Class.  See you then!

2008-11-06 14:29:04 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Hello folks.
2008-11-06 14:29:50 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I'm big believer in twitter in education...like Alan Nov says, we should b teaching our students to make friends with others around the world...twitter is great for that
2008-11-06 14:30:30 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: @matt but they are using facebook for that as well
2008-11-06 14:30:35 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: do you use twitter in the classroom - connected to kids? get them to sign up?
2008-11-06 14:30:39 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: http://podcamp.pbwiki.com/
2008-11-06 14:30:40 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I was a bit skeptical about twitter with students, but after the election day I see the power
2008-11-06 14:30:55 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Hey Matt --
2008-11-06 14:31:07 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: but vinnie, facebook is a little more personal...I think they gurad their facebook to mostly peeps they know in phycal world
2008-11-06 14:31:22 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: twitter would allow them to extend out a bit...
2008-11-06 14:31:59 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: the difference b/t FB updates and twitter updates became very clear to me on election day this year...
2008-11-06 14:32:19 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: but who knows, I could be drinking bad kool aid
2008-11-06 14:32:37 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: but I was following the updates via my daughter's facebook wall upgrades on her blackberry
2008-11-06 14:35:32 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: that is always the prob at conferences...we had bandwidth issues a t San Jose Convention center 2 weeks ago, and I would say only 10 percent of participants had laptops!!!
2008-11-06 14:35:48 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: what would happen if everyone brought their laptops to a conference!!
2008-11-06 14:36:41 [Message] daibarnes -> -EdTechTalk: I've started getting my students to develop a PLN using fbk, delicious, twitter, blogs, wikis. twitter acts as the glue that connects everything
2008-11-06 14:36:44 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Tools --- What do you recommend?
2008-11-06 14:37:21 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: Tool #1: the wiki: http://neit.wikispaces.com

2008-11-06 14:39:22 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: hi all
2008-11-06 14:39:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I'm on it! Just started following. :-)
2008-11-06 14:39:49 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: You are not born if you are not Twitter :)
2008-11-06 14:40:00 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Min Haaj.
2008-11-06 14:40:05 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: Hey alex
2008-11-06 14:40:21 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: guess i am late
2008-11-06 14:40:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Are you creating a Flickr group for adding photos or just tagging?
2008-11-06 14:40:47 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: we weren't planning on a group. What do you think?
2008-11-06 14:41:01 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: no problem minhaaj, we try to start at 15 minutes after the hour
2008-11-06 14:41:26 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I really like the group feature. Use it for 366photos and works really well.
2008-11-06 14:41:56 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: hmmmm, i like the concept. I use groups in my digital media class
2008-11-06 14:41:59 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: They also created a group for Ignite Phoenix and all photos are in one place.
2008-11-06 14:42:00 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: ahh
2008-11-06 14:42:26 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: I just don't like that people have to upload to their account, and then share with teh group
2008-11-06 14:42:32 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: the 2 steps can be confused
2008-11-06 14:43:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: What I like is I can create my own sets and tag everything but then can select the best to share with the group.
2008-11-06 14:44:09 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: i LOVE that part, just can be hard for the new user. But when has that ever stopped us?
2008-11-06 14:44:33 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Maybe a screencast with instructions?? :-)
2008-11-06 14:45:04 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: Jing project :)
2008-11-06 14:45:09 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I really like the PD rubric process and model used by the K12online conference.
2008-11-06 14:45:20 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, Jing project would work too :-)
2008-11-06 14:48:57 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I probably missed this part of the conversation, but are you considering any remote presetations via Skype? We did that with Jennifer Dorman at our CR20 unconference and it worked great!
2008-11-06 14:50:35 [Message] minhaaj -> -EdTechTalk: bye all
2008-11-06 14:50:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks! I'll check the posted audio for what I missed.
